+gipc: multiprocessing and IPC for gevent
+With ``gipc`` you can easily integrate gevent-aware
+``multiprocessing.Process``-based child processes into your application.
+Furthermore, ``gipc`` provides pipe-based gevent-aware inter-process
+communication (a lot of dashes, huh?).
+On Unix, child process creation via Python's ``multiprocessing`` package in the
+context of ``gevent`` might yield an undesired event loop state in the child and
+most likely breaks your application in some way. Blocking method calls such
+``join()`` on a ``multiprocessing.Process`` or the ``send()``/``recv()`` methods
+on a ``multiprocessing.Pipe`` are not gevent-cooperative. ``gipc`` hides and
+solves these problems for you in a straight-forward fashion and allows for
+simple integration of child processes in your application.
+ - pip/easy_install pypi
+ - download from bitbucket, install with setup.py
+ - built for gevent > 1.0
+ - currently, the timeout-feature does not work
+ - non-blocking I/O is faked via a threadpool (significant performance drop
+ - solution would be IOCP-based (cf. libuv)
+ - refer to docs, especially API docs
